Hello,

I have the reference to an object which i think is a checkbox.  But when i do:

alert(MyObject);

i get:

[object htmlinputelement],[object htmlinputelement]

Open in new window

What is this telling?  Does MyObject contain two child objects?  How can i access each one?

You can't alert a checkbox - it's just an object on the page, you can alert it's values/attributes

Well what was happening was i seemed to have two checkboxes with the same name so hence the Array of objects.  I was able to reference each using MyObject[0] and MyObject[1] but the real problem was that they should have had difference names.

Problem solved.
